The Hiawatha Valley League Conference one-act plays this year were universally strong at the annual festival on Saturday, and judges awarded three schools top honors, naming them Starred Productions: Triton, Rochester Lourdes, and Kasson-Mantorville.

In addition, the judges named the following performers All Conference: Grace Murray from Zumbrota-Mazeppa; Vasco Diogo from Stewartville; Josef Chlachula and Rene Stiller from Rochester Lourdes; Allie Serres and Mat Breuer from Cannon Falls, Erica Thompson from Byron, Angela Dahl and Ben Jager from Kasson-Mantorville; Emily Craig and Gus Schwen from Lincoln High School in Lake City; Gavin Johnson and Preston Pflaum from Triton; Caleb Kopp and Laura Torgeson from Pine Island.

The annual HVL Festival was held at Stewartville High School. Triton performed a dramatization of Stephen Vincent Benet's poem "John Brown's Body," Rochester Lourdes performed "Bro White and the Dwarves," an original script, and Kasson-Mantorville presented "Checks Please." Of particular note: this is Triton's twentieth consecutive star rating.

Judges were impressed with the overall quality in the HVL productions. Other schools participating who also received positive comments this year were Byron, Stewartville, Zumbrota-Mazeppa, Lincoln High School in Lake City, Pine Island, and Cannon Falls.

All of the schools who participated will compete in their separate Minnesota State High School League sub-section contests in the coming week. Judges at the HVL were all experienced and well-regarded judges: Sandra Nieland, speech teacher at John Marshall High School in Rochester, former Pine Island director Tom Bollman, and Minnesota State High School League speech and one-act consultant Michael Tillman.
